Meet at Xincheng Station in Hualien County, where we begin our trip. Our staff awaits to transfer to Taroko Gorge National Park, where varied mountain peaks, numerous waterfalls, diverse plant forms and animal life, together with the indigenous Taroko people, create a rich texture of a unique and natural ecosystem.
Begin our 4 hour hike to our aboriginal homestay for the night. We will climb up steep terrain to reach the villages above. Enjoy a welcome feast and views like no other within Taroko Gorge.
At night keep warm by the fire while gazing at the stars above. Listen to our host sing songs of the Truku tribe while playing guitar.
Early morning wake up for a short hike up the mountain cliff to view sunrise over the Pacific Ocean. We will perch ourselves 1,000 meters above the ocean below, with the lights of the coastal towns lighting up the night while we await the sun’s arrival.
Return to our accommodation for breakfast, coffee and tea before packing up and saying goodbye to our hosts. Hike down the mountain to Taroko Gorge National Park Visitor Center and transfer to the train station.
